Dream Eats Mobile Cafe

It's starting to become clear that we're in the midst of a food truck mini-boom. The Dream Eats Cafe is the latest entry into the scene. Owned by Scott Johnson, Brenda Majors and David Matthews, the truck specializes in gourmet lunch grub, according to Johnson, who's owned the catering company An Affair to Remember for the last 17 years in Central Arkansas and North Carolina. Now operating the on-site catering for War Memorial Stadium, Johnson's making Gate 9 of War Memorial his primary base for Dream Eats, though he predicts he'll move around some.

In the cafe's early days, Johnson said he'll be serving items like shrimp gazpacho, a Cubano sandwich, a Cobb salad, a chicken Caesar salad, a pulled barbecue chicken sandwich and hand-cut fries. A fuller menu listing is at the truck's Facebook page. Johnson said in the future he'll offer a daily entree special and a daily dessert. The Facebook page and a Twitter account that Johnson is planning on setting up soon will provide info on daily specials.

"Everything we do is made from scratch," Johnson said. "All the dressings are house made. All the marinades."

The only exception is the bread, which comes from Boulevard.

Johnson said he expects to expand into breakfast and the occasional dinner offerings in the not too distant future.

The truck's phone number is 501-690-8733.

According to its Facebook page, it's closed until Thursday for private catering events.
